COURT HOUSE IN BAD SHAPE'
Xitenser Filet Complaint with the
County Board on Wood Finishing, j
BASTE SAYS WOKS IS E0TTE5 i
lntllnll DeTlaxa that De-1
. cratle t'osatT mH Ha Left ;
tbe Affairs at Jt Balld
las Badlr MaddW.
Drastic criticism of th wood finiahinc
la the new county buildinc and of othr
work on the structure was mad by John j
Latenser. architect of tb building, at
the tint meetine of the reorgnliea
Board of County Commiseioners yesterday.
Jt resulted in a decision 01 the commis
sioner to call in Caldwell aV Drake, the
ft-eneml corurartora, and their bondsmen.
County Attorney James P. English and
31 r. Latenser foe. a conference at which
all matters In connection with the new
buridlnt thoroughly will be threshed.
Mr. Jjatenser's report was not the only
matter in connection with the new build
ing which wait discussed. Other details
nere considered and it developed that the
entire matter was left in a muddle by
the old board.
Mr. Latenser- report on the wood fin
ishing was as follow:
I find the finish is not Installed accord
ing to specifications. The base should
I housed Into plinth blocks. It I" lln
Uhrd with butt joints, which have already
opened up. The baas at all angles should
be grooved and toogued; this refers to
the chair rails also. The finish is put up,
in the cheapest manner with ail bull
Joints, except moulding, which is coped
lie way to conceal a Joint in case of
shrinkage. I find the doors are badly
warped and don't fit the rebated jam.
fonts doors are ne-quarter Inch otf at
the top of door. oora also small In
vtrith. showing one-eighth Inch to three
elkteenths Inch Joint on some doors. I
lind panels In some of the doors are
shrunk and show one-eighth Inch snnna
sge from finished stvle. The bae is
l-adly drawing away from the plaster n
some places. Floors In most all the
looms ar badly coped. I find a good
many joints opened In base and casing
and chair rail."
Vaalt Oaors Bad.
Mr. Laisnser declared that the vault
doors which Caldwell Drake proposed
to put In Iba new building and which he
condemned nearly three months ago be
cause they were below specifications, still
are In the building, notwithstanding the
fact that he put the matter up to the
board long ago and Caldwell Drake
appealed to the board from the architect s
-The specified vault doors would cost
about il.MO," said Mr. Latenser, "while
the doors that ara over then cost about
Jl JO er H,W."
Commissioner A. C. Herts said that two
weeks ago ha had occasion to visit the
new aounty building, looked over the
woodwork and found It "absolutely rot
ten." The filling, he said, was terrible,
air. Latenser said such work never should
se tilled at ait.
A resolution calling upon the architect
for a complete report of all progress on
tlte building since Its construction was
begun, giving amounts paid, amounts due,
and balances on hand was unanimously
adopted. As soon aa this report Is re
ceived the conference with the contra c
'v tors, their bondsmen and others Interested
111 be called. ,
' During the discussion It developed that
when former Commissioner Oscar J. I
Pteaaiw and Commissioner Fster K
Klaaasar recently visited the quarries and i
general offices of the Colorado Tula Mar
Ma company In Marble, Cola., the com
pany's officials proposed another substitu
tion In the niarbls contract and Mr. i
rickard told them ha thought the board I
would approve the substitution. j
Will Not Take Saaetltat.
As a result the company has shipped
samples of golden vein marble, which it
wishes to substitute for Pavaneao marble
in the plasters. The samples arrived yes
terday and the commissioners otdarOj to
look at them as a matter of courtesy, but 1
I Commissioner Harte, Lynch, Elssaser
had Best declared they have no Intention ;
of approving any substitution. i
The board voted to pay Caldwell at i
Drake s claim for work don during De
cember, tll.Ms.7i. When this la Paid the

Calvin Zelgler, superintendent of the
building tor Caldwell ft Drake, protested
agsinst the board deducting from the
December payment 11. CO for coal used In
heating the new building. The deduction
was to have been made under a contract
between the general contractors and the
county, mad to accommodate the con
tractors when cold weather set In and
found them unable to heat the building.
The county waa to heat t for them and
they were to reimburse the county for
